Paulaner Salvator Doppelbock

Type: doppelbock
Origin: Munich, Germany
Price: $2.39 per 16 oz

In the under $3 category, this must be the most interesting beer I have ever consumed. It has a wonderful reddish/orange color that warns the less experienced beer drinkers to 'get the fuck out the way. There is a strong smoked cheese smell and an absolutely powerful currant taste in addition to the good hop balance and maltiness. The only reason I know what currants taste like is because I drank some currant juice hung over on a train the wrong way out of Vienna, trying to get to the Military Museum. It was totally worth it. They had a courtyard of Panzer tanks. Photo proof:
